5 weight management tips for the holidays from St. Joseph Chiropractic in St. Joseph, MO

Be active with others

While on holiday, participate in physical activities that keep you, your family, and friends in motion.  It can be as simple as taking a walk, running, or dancing.  These activities encourage our bodies to lose fat.

Smart snacking

Holidays are filled with cookies and other unhealthy snacks.  Keeping snacks out of sight can solve this problem while at home. However, office or family parties can be a challenge to fat loss.  Here, it may be wise to avoid treats altogether.  Substitute unhealthy snacks with nuts or fruits in order to avoid gaining weight.

Watch your portion sizes

Portion sizes tend to be on the bigger side during holidays.  This is not recommended when your main goal is fat loss.  Measure food in small quantities or use smaller plates to limit weight gain.

Get plenty of sleep

Sleep deprivation may increase your calorie intake as sleep restriction increases the levels of hunger hormones. Lower metabolism is also linked to inadequate sleep, which may contribute to weight gain. Make sure this holiday season is filled with enough quality sleep to get you back to health.

Plan ahead

Holidays are around the corner and there is time to be proactive. There is no better way to lose fat than by planning ahead. Know beforehand what you should or should not eat. Inquire before going to parties the food that will be served. You might need to bring your own dish or gather healthy holiday recipes.
